When she was married to an Iranian, Eliza's interest in Muslim social and religious practice was acute and her interest has endured into the present.
Eliza reads from a play that combines elements from an earlier play she was commissioned to write about Cliterodectomy.
That play was not allowed to be performed at a university theatre festival in Turkey, because of its subject matter. Later, she incorporated it into another play about some actors rehearsing two short plays against a background of Muslim restrictions that require women actors to wear face coverings. That later play is titled Blue Sky Thinking and is available on Amazon.
